Approved by the FDA in 1990, this procedure employs the use of lasers with high-powered beams of light energy. Each laser has its own unique wavelength of light, which allows us to perform a variety of procedures, including shaping and removing soft tissue, cutting through hard tissue like tooth enamel, and augmenting certain chemical reactions.
Lasers can aid in a large number of dental procedures, including removing caries and filling cavities and reshaping soft tissue in treatments involving crowns or gum lifts. They can also help with whitening treatments as well as dentin and enamel procedures. Even tumor removal and biopsies can be done with a laser procedure.
Dental procedures conducted with lasers have a myriad of benefits. Some of them include:
Thanks our lasers state-of-the-art abilities, treatments can frequently be done with minimal (or no) drills or anesthetic.
Lasers can cauterize as they cut, which results in less bleeding, both during the procedure and throughout the recovery period. They also disinfect, which decreases the risk of a bacterial infection after treatment.
Healing occurs more quickly and tissue regenerates more effectively with laser treatment. This means you spend less time recovering and can return to your daily routine faster.
Our lasers’ unique abilities allow for procedures that don't require stitches or sutures in order to heal. There are also fewer office visits, which means more time in your schedule for things you want to be doing.
Laser treatment offers better accuracy with less disturbance to the tissue. This, in turn, means decreased pain and discomfort for you.
